Note: server versions of these operating systems usually do not include a graphical user interface (GUI) such as Gnome. The server versions are typically used to perform background operations such as network file back-ups, hosting a web server, network name resolution (DNS), IP address assignment (DHCP), and media streaming (DLNA). Typically server operating systems are managed from the command line interface (CLI), a remote web application such as Webmin, or a terminal interface. We recommend installing these non-point and click systems for network training or for experienced data centre technicians and engineers.
